Happy Kitchen Project: Painting Happy
Day 8: Happy Kitchen Project: Painted Terra Cotta Pots & Wooden Spoons
We have come up with another DIY that is a sure fire way to add a hit of colour and fun for a happy kitchen. This is great project to do with kids and may even help them want to set the table!
First we went to our local floral shop and got three terra cotta pots for $3 each. We then went to the dollar store and were able to find wooden spoons and three acrylic paint colours we liked at $2 each. We used our Designers Collective brand colours for our inspiration. You can use colours from your colour palette from Day 2 of the Happy Kitchen Project. We had a small paint brush at home so so far it was turning out to be an inexpensive DIY!
At home we put brown craft paper on the counter to protect it and then brushed on two coats of paint onto each pot. Make sure you wash your brush well between colours!
While they were drying we decided to try our hand at personalizing some wooden utensils. We used the same colours and just painted the bottom part of the handle just to add some colour. We tried different patterns on the utensils- solid colour, dots, and stripes. We used strips of masking tape to make a nice crisp line. After the paint dried we removed the tape.
After all the pots and utensils dried, we decided to add a couple of coats of Modge Podge to give them a nice shiny finish. We really like how they turned out! How about setting these on your counter or table? Wouldn’t it make setting the table easy? Especially for kids.
We also think these would work well in a small kitchen where you need all your drawer space.
Use the pots to organize your telephone area.
